Brave - Cover
Stacy McAnulty, Running Press Kids 2017
A brave kid...seeks adventure (in books and maps), has super strength (playing chess), a courageous heart (checking under the bed in a dark room), never gives up (wheel chair bike in a race)...and more. Each page in this powerful book shows children of various racialized identities being brave in their day to day lives. It is lively, and catchy...and ends with Brave kids can save the world - just by being brave. Wonderful!
